Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
Here we go again…another summer weekend, will it be hot and dry or cool and rainy? Last Saturday was a perfect day and I had plans of lounging poolside all afternoon, but sometimes pool maintenance can change the best laid plans. I often dream of having a “Pool Boy”, someone to keep the chemicals balanced, remove the debris and skim the leaves…someone too…HOLD ON…wait a minute!
Hubby wouldn’t like that very much and I would probably end up getting someone like Nick Cannon in “Love Don’t Cost A Thing!”
We’ve had our pool for about 18 years and there is always maintenance involved some more intense than others like the replacement of tiles. These fell off a few years ago and it took me too many hours on Saturday to replace them.
I stopped at Leslie’s Pool Supplies and purchased Patch It, it wasn’t hard to make the putty but like that scene from The Cosby Show, I’d seal one tile and another would fall off – it was frustrating to say the least.
After several hours of this I gave up but only after using the entire bucket!
Of course then I had to vacuum out the residue and skim the leaves!
After all that, I was finally able to sit back and relax for a whole 2 hours!!
So if you happen to be in the neighborhood – stop by & bring a cold one…AND a Pool Boy!
Have a fantastical day – Smooches!
Hello friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Cook rice according to package
Cover and turn heat on low for approximately 15 minutes
Spoon chicken and peppers over rice, serve and enjoy!

Are you a Winer – do you like trying new Wines – if so, I want your Wine Winning recipes!
I am not a wine connoisseur nor do I don’t spend a lot for a bottle of wine. I am a sucker for a deal and love fun colorful bottles, and this is where I shop on FriYays after work.
You meet the nicest people at Pockets Discount Liquors
(BTW I don’t know this man but asked if he wanted to be in the pic – lol)
Smirnoff Ice has a new flavor Peach Bellini, although not a wine, it is one my summer favorite drinks
Last weekend I added Peach Bellini Ice to Talenti Alphonso Mango Sorbetto and topped it with Whipped Cream
It looked better than it tasted, which is why I need your help!
Go to my Facebook Page to post a pic of your Winning Wine recipe and it will be featured in the
4th of July Food & Fun Holiday Post.
Have a fantastical day – Smooches!
